So...I'm kinda wanting to go back to Gen 1 again. What better way than to try something new?
Because this is my first Scramble, I'd like some Medium difficulty challenges, please don't make them too easy, though. Personally, I'd like to play with Bulbasaur, but I'm open to using Charmander or Squirtle as my starter, too.
Game: Pokemon Red, because its the first one I obtained.
The more creative the challenge, the more I'll want to use it. Same goes for a backstory. A good backstory will make me want to accept slightly harder challenges than usual.
Tentacalm the Tentacool
Hey Alice, you can have Tentacalm the Tentacruel.
Tentacalm isn't your average Tentacruel. It refuses to essentialise any of the characteristics that have given it its species name and instead wants to be recognised as a paradigm of goodness in the pokémon world. It wants to help you out as much as possible, and so learns both Cut and Surf as soon as you catch it and uses them both whenever you see a cuttable tree or a body of water that needs crossing.
It also refuses to use any of the techniques that the giant Tentacruel at Hatoba Port used when it ransacked the city along with its army of Tentacool, so it can't use Constrict, Wrap, Surf (in battle), Rage or Supersonic at any point. Also, because Nastina, the woman who aggravated the giant Tentacruel into attacking the port, resembles Agatha, Tentacalm refuses to fight any of her pokémon.
It also holds a grudge against Team Rocket, as the force that created the giant Tentacruel, so it must solo Giovanni every time you meet him after catching Tentacalm.
To evolve, Tentacalm must be switched out of battle with wild Tentacool fifteen times, so that it learns that not all Tentacool are prone to violence.
Piercer the Beedrill
Alice in Strings gets Piercer the Beedrill. Naturally, you have to evolve it, though...But you must have a Beedrill before you hit Route 3.
Piercer is your typical Beedrill; Slow, good early game, terrible late game, but that does not stop Piercer from trying to achieve glory! Piercer, as its name suggests, like to try & pierce things as much as possible, & Piercer achieves this through using only multi-hit moves as attacking moves. Piercer also wants to prove to you that it knows what it is doing, & that its attacking style is definitely worth looking at. So it wants to do this by soloing two Gym Leaders. Maybe then you can realise how good Beedrill can be.
-Piercer the Beedrill
-Must have Beedrill before you hit Route 3
-From the moment it learns Fury Attack (Which you must teach), the only attacking moves it may use in battle are attacks that hit more than once (Fury Attack, Twineedle, Pin Missile)
-Must solo 2 Gym Leaders
Have fun. The two GL requirement is pretty easy if other challenges allow, but w/e.
Ancient the Bulbasaur
In a time before time, when the world was just starting to stablize, there was a vast predatory network of "Saurs."
Saurs were small, toad-like creatures that utilized ambush tactics to take down their prey. They were the wolves of the late Cretcacous and they knew it.
Millions of years of Evolution made them stronger than most creatures of ther size. That all changed, however, when a large comet crashed into the planet's surface in what is known as the Giant Chasm today. This impact killed millions of species of plants and launched the spores of of many others thousands of miles in every direction.
One such spore came from the Kumlious Puppetize, more comonly known as "Bulba's Puppet" named so after Professor Bulba Juniper who isolated the spore's DNA during a study of pokemon-to-plant physiology.
This spore was inhaled through the airways of the Saur species and took root in their lungs. They grew throughout the host'd body, mutating them into half plant creatures. The mutations caused their natural speed and agility to be hampered as their legs became slanted and stumped. A bulb grew on their backs, increasing their weight and attracting predators who were originally prey to them, such as Heracross. Eventually, this parasitic plant became symbiotic with the animal and began offering defense in the form of deadly spores and cutting leaves.
Fortuantly for the other animals, the new Bulbasaur was now a peaceful herbavoir instead of a vicious predator.
Ok, now, I think you know what you will be using, but I'll tell you anyway: Bulbasaur.
This Bubasaur has its genetic code's crossed and believes its a predator like its ancestors. It must use its new body in order to capture prey and devour them.
Learn Vine Whip in order to hold prey down and deliver the killing blow. Sleep Powder will be used to take down larger prey. Body Slam in order to crush the bones of prey and allow you to drink their body fluids. Rest because you require strength to kill your prey.
This Bulbasaur remembers the pretadors that were once prey. Solo the entire grass Gym.
Name this Bulbasaur Ancient because this is a being who is trapped in the future, but belongs in the past.
Cinderella the Clefairy
Alice in Strings,
take a Clefairy named Cinderella from MT. MOON
Cinderella thinks she's a princess so she hates getting dirty.
Therefore, she refuses to use physical attacks, and won't fight any poison, bug,
rock, or ground pokemon. She must be switched out, BUT only after taking a hit to show her.. princess-ness... idk.
BUT towards the middle (5th gym) (so everything above besides the physical moves only goes to crap), she realizes it's her duty as princess to cleanse her kingdom and must use a water type move (either bubble or watergun idk of any others she could learn) against every poison, bug, rock, and ground type pokemon she meets. AND only water type moves.
She can evolve whenever you want, and she must solo all of koga's gym but cannot be used against Koga himself, for no reason... meh.
Stellar the Eevee
Stellar was born into an elite Vaporeon family presiding over a group of Pikachu servants, and learned all their nature-loving ways. But when s/he was still very small, its family offended some Belossom and Vileplume who promptly came in and slaughtered them all with Petal Dance after sprinkling Speel Powder in their food. Stellar managed to escape because two of her friend Pikachu distracted the grass-types with an attack while Stellar sneaked out the side. With the help of an Eldarly Pachirisu, it sneaked itself onto a boat to Viridian city, where it got lost.
Stellar must solo all Oddish, Gloom, and Vileplume not owned by the gym trainers, must evolve to Jolteon, and must use only moves it can learn somehow in Gen4. You may not heal Ancient while Stellar is not KOd, as it hates all Grass types now, especially the predator ones. Lastly, it must learn flash and use it first when facing water types, as it wants to show off its talent to its family, however distant they may be.
